For those of you who don’t know, November happens to be Comedy Month here in Philly. What the hell does Comedy Month entail exactly? Well, in short, 30 straight nights of awesome shows featuring the funniest folks in town as well as a carefully selected group of out-of-town acts.
The month long comedy extravaganza is organized by the Philadelphia Comedy Collective (a group of a few local comedy performers and producers) and is technically comprised of the Philadelphia Improv Festival (Nov. 7-11), followed by Philly Sketchfest (Nov. 12-17) and capped off with a miscellaneous sprinkling of indie stand-up, storytelling and variety shows better known as the City Spotlight (Nov. 6-30).
Being the hardcore local comedy enthusiast that I am, I’ll be covering as many of the nightly shows as humanly possible for PWStyle, hopefully convincing you to go out and actually see one, or two, or twenty.
With that said, check back tomorrow for a roundup of the must-see Philly Improv Festival shows and be sure to follow the Philly Comedy Collective on Twitter @phlcomedy to keep abreast of all the comedy happenings.
